The effect of slurry conditioning on bitumen recovery and bitumen froth quality has been studied by using three oil sands ores tested with a laboratory hydrotransport extraction system (LHES) and a Denver flotation cell. Tests with the LHES show that an increase in slurry conditioning time...
Probing Challenges of Asphaltenes in Petroleum Production through Extended−SARA (E−SARA) AnalysisDownload
Asphaltenes are polyaromatic compounds present in crude oils, which are defined as being soluble in aromatic solvents and insoluble in n−alkanes. The partition of self−associated asphaltene aggregates at oil−solid and oil−water interfaces is the root cause of a number of major problems...
Carbon dioxide (CO2) was shown as a promising alternative for oil sands tailings treatment with economical and environmental benefits. This thesis aims to understand the role of CO2 addition in settling and densification of oil sands tailings. In this study, CO2 was pressurized into two...
Design, Synthesis, Characterization of a new pH-Responsive Copolymer and its Application in Oil Sands Tailings TreatmentDownload
This research aims at treating mature fine tailings (MFT) with a novel pH-responsive copolymer poly (N,N-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate-co-acrylamide-co-acrylic acid) p(DMAEMA-co-AM-co-AA). Compared with conventional polyacrylamide (PAM), the conformation and property of this novel copolymer can...
